I installed 10.7.3 (10.7.0 install + 10.7.3 update from OSX software update tool) yesterday on my GA-EX58-UD5 (Biod F12) with a Nvidia GT9500 using DD script v6.54
Everything went great, and I got a fully working Lion (sound, network, sleep) at the first try
Here is my feedback and comments (in blue) to DD user guide (taken from the first post of this topic)
- Pre requisites:
- A running 10.6.x installation
- A new partition for 10.7
- A dedicated drive (HDD or USB stick) for the installer.
- And of course, a 10.7 DVD or ESD download from the app store.
- If using a hard drive or flash drive, partition it as MBR. (GUID partitions cause the BIOS to lock up in my experience on Gigabyte boards.)
=> This will not be the final Lion installation, it is only used a temporary installer drive (might be obvious to experts, but it was not for me the first time I tried to install Lion)
=> I used an external HDD (ATA by the way) connected using USB (firewire did not work)
=> Only ~5GB of disk space was required, so a 8Gb USB stick might be enough.
- Mount Lion ISO/DVD. If you have a ESD download from the App Store, make sure it is in the default Applications folder or place it on the Desktop.
- From script, run Create boot disk (menu #15) and select the default Boot Disk option.
- Select a boot drive from the list of the storage devices and create the boot disk, skipping EFI strings setup. No other steps are needed to prepare this boot drive. However, you may install a DSDT patch file, if you wish.
=> selected boot drive is the "temproary installer" one (the USB ATA drive in my case)
=> Very easy step indeed: just confirm each default choice in the Boot Disk procedure.
- Restart and boot into new drive, "Mac OS X Base System."
- Install Lion on drive of your choice.
- Boot back into your current Snow Leopard system.
- Run HackInstaller and select your Lion install drive as your target drive (menu #12).
- Install the Chameleon v2.1-RC5 bootloader (menu #2 and bootloader selection #3).
=> Chameleon was choice #2 (instead of #3) in my case.
- Run Kext/kernel installer (menu #3).
=> Note: There should be no SleepEnabler in the kext list
- Double-check that the verbose flag (-v) is set in the boot plist (menu #7). This is useful for troubleshooting.
- Install DSDT patch (menu #5).
- => Reboot, and choose the Lion drive, boot on Lion.
At this point Lion (10.7.0) is running, sound is OK but sleep does not work (reboot at wake up)
- => Run software update and update to 10.7.3
- => [Optional] Reboot to Lion: You should have a working 10.7.3 but without sound nor sleep working.
- => Reboot on Snow Leopard
- => In the HackInstaller/10.7/misc_patches Move the SleepEnaler kext from repository to misc_patches directory
- => Run script, select your Lion disk, and run Kext/kernel installer (menu #3)
This time, sleep enabler should appear in the list
Install Kexts, this will fix the sound and sleep issue.
- => Reboot on Lion, everything should work fine.
